Beargrass (1-gal)

(Xerophyllum tenax) Forms a tall grass-like clump of tough leaves topped by a large dense cluster of white flowers. Flowers irregularly every few years. Dominates the forest under story in many Cascade sub-alpine forests. Xerophyllum means dry leaves, and tenax means tough for the usefulness of the leaves in clothes and basket making. Indigenous peoples made baskets, hats and capes with the leaves. They were especially used for fine overlapping, trimming, and ornamentation.
